  1. Only this year did I think about fvr. The reason is cause ben advocates for reading in level 2. The thing is there is no money for readers or money. Then I remembered that I would read my level one students freewrites with such joy dur ing my summer. Then it hit me, I can just type these up fornthe summer then have fvr for level 2 s. Reading in level one will be whole class created stories. Last year,my first year teaching and teaching with ci, I kept rewriting freewrites and creating my own mini stories from our word wall. I did this as a warm up. If anyone is interested I can make a google doc and share those mini stories.

    1. I’m interested I am struggling with what to do with my second years I know I want to do fvr but have literally no money but printing copies of student work is a great idea.

  2. Using Free Writes as the source of reading materials was the beginning of what became Embedded Readings. See “Justin’s Story” on the Embedded Reading website.

  3. Hmm. What do you mean? Have the students do ‘free write’ for X minutes, collect and type them, fixing up grammar as you go?
    Copy and have class all have access to read a student’s writing as their reading? And its FVR not read aloud?
